Renata is an ordinary, morose neighbour who cannot stand many things in this world, often writes complaints to the city council and grumbles about children’s noisy chatter. She is especially bothered by seagulls, which for some reason loudly intrude her yard. Renata lives in some town’s multi-storey house, in a small apartment, a look inside which allows discovering a very unusual secret. What is Renata really like? Maybe she is just enchanted?

"This story about Renata is about freedom, about finding it, about regaining it. It is my duty as an artist of this play, not an author, to implement this freedom in my work." - Rūta Briede, the author and artist of the book

"Does your child know that a nasty neighbour who can't stand the croaking of seagulls may be an enchanted queen, but an uncle who sings quite off-tune and plays the accordion may turn out to be a loving prince? After watching the play about the seagull queen Renata at the Puppet Theatre, the children will begin to reveal the secrets that live in every person – also both in themselves and their parents." - Inese Zandere
